limit is a sign of leadership failure, it's a sign that the u.s. government can't pay its own bills, it's a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government's reckless fiscal policies. leadership means that the buck stops here. instead, washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today on the backs of our children and grandchildren, therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase america's debt limit. in 2008, candidate obama blamed president bush and called the growing debt unpatriotic. >> number 43 added 4 trillion dollars by his lonesome so that we now have over 9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back, $30,000 for every man, woman and child, that's irresponsible. it's unpatriotic. >> mike: unpatriotic. 9 trillion dollars in debt 2008. we're 16 1/2 trillion dollars in debt today. all right. joining me now, former house speaker newt gingrich. mr. speaker, great having you with me tonight.

. they go where the government said you can't protect yourself and it frustrates me. i have children in school. i work in sometimes in places where guns are not allow puts me in the position of flag rantly ignoring the law or oboying the law and putting myself at risk. right now the president and vice-president and senator feinstein are proposing we crack down on people who owns guns and capacities was magazines. you faced it first hand with your own family. tell me what you think of the proposals and what you think are helpful to people like you or if you think it is more advantageous to the criminal than people like you? they are a joke. the only thing that gun laws like that do is prevent people like me from being able to protect ourselves. they don't affect people who are bent on doing harm in any way, shape or form. i find it very frustrating when they use such a horrible event as what happened in connecticut to try to go after guns that frankly, this is another one of my frustrations, is that the so-called assault weapons you talk to the average person on the street. they think

conventions or places where hunters are gathering, they go where the government has said, you can't protect yourself. and it frustrates me because i have children in school. i work at, sometimes at places where guns aren't allowed and it puts me in the position of either flagrantly ignoring the law or obeying the law and putting myself at risk. >> mike: right now, the president, the vice-president, senator feinstein and others are proposing that we really crackdown on people who own guns in the capacity of magazines. and i mean, you've faced this firsthand with your own family. tell me what you think about the proposals, whether you think they're going be to be helpful to people like you or if you think it's going to be more-- advantageous to the criminal rather than to people like you. >> they're a joke. the only thing the gun laws like that do is prevent people like me from being able to protect ourselves. they do not affect people who are bent on doing harm in any way, shape or form. so, i find it very frustrating when they use such a horrible event as what happened in connecticut to try

there's a training program that the federal government sponsored and they were trained, it protects the airplane, not one incident of a problem. >> let me just show, i've been saying that this is feel-good legislation, that there's motion, a the lot of motion, and lot of rhetoric, a lot of props being used, exploittation of a tragedy. in new york, they passed a law this week and i'm going to put up on the screen a picture. two guns, the exact same gun, exact same caliber of bullet, and one has a pistol grip, the other does not. one is banned, one is legal. now, that's the type of thing that makes me say, these guys have no clue what they're talking about. by the way, would anybody here use the pistol grip on their rifle, anyway? nobody would, it's cosmetic, wouldn't even use it. >> sean, i'll say there's one particular pistol i purchased when i went backpacking in alaska, my wife wanted something other than a whistle to protect myself from the grizzly bears, and that weapon would be banned under governor cuomo's proposal and some of the proposals that are going forward in congress.
